I like to test simple and sometimes stupid things and report it in a BHW thread. So here I go again... I was doing rep management on an individuals name. It was low competition. Typically just had their authoritative social profiles that they didn't want shown. The profiles were strong. So I registered an EMD WordPress. I created a couple pages, with not 500 words on each, not even 200 words, but 2 sentences. I added an outbound related link. I added an image. I then popped the WordPress blog into GSA and send about 500 do follow links to it. What happened? It ranked top 3 and it's been sitting there for several weeks, along with the inner pages I created. I've pushed down a lot of negative results and it's sticking. What would happen if this wasn't a WordPress.com blog but rather a fresh domain? It wouldn't have maintained the rank. What's amazing is how these Web 2.0s can have the crap kicked out of them with bad links and still hold strong. These results make it so clear why we all use these as tier 1 buffer sites when spamming. That's all for now.
